Predicted to enable cytokine receptor activity. Acts upstream of or within defense response to virus. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Used to study type 1 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in immunodeficiency 28. Orthologous to human IFNGR2 (interferon gamma receptor 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
